Wires everywhere

I'm trying to arrange the wires for my lighting on the bottom of the lid of of my canopy so that they don't just fall everywhere, but nothing seems to work. I have these U shaped wire holders but the nails don't seem to stay put and electrical tape wont hold past a day.

What do you all use to attach your wires for your lighting to your canopy?

I use zip ties also. I also use what we call "Sticky Blocks" for the wire ties. You just have to put some extra glue on them if you use them on wood. I got them all over my tank top. Ain't had one fall off yet.

There are zip ties that have a hole in them to put a screw so you can screw it to the top and keep the zip tie where its supposed to be. I actually just used some to finish up my hood
